Moore was asked if the Documentary would be released on DVD he said," there is going to be a DVD for sure, I know they started working on the packaging and the artwork. Bonus material I am not sure, again that is the film companies decision, so whatever decide but certainly the band is not against it. I think they are targeting it for late summer early fall for the DVD release and that will be available everywhere worldwide."

Moore was also asked about the premiere on CTV in Canada on March 12 2022 as well as a possible release date for the USA , Moore said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): "Just to clear the fog a little bit on the distribution, which is something the band obviously doesn't control. But the deal up here in Canada right now is this Saturday night, the movie's gonna play on the CTV network, coast to coast, in prime time, 8 p.m., at whatever your local CTV affiliate is, wherever you are. As far as it streaming on Crave, it is continuing to stream on Crave and will be there for years. And film festival-wise, we also, after the Toronto International Film Festival, the film premiered at the Philadelphia Film Festival. We're now scheduled for the Sarasota Film Festival as well; I don't have a date on that. But I think there's gonna be some announcements coming up fairly soon about U.S. distribution as well. So it'll probably be a Video On Demand play and then probably a streamer as well — similar to [the way it is] here [in Canada]."

Regarding the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the documentary so far, Gil said: "It's a story of ups and downs and right turns and left turns. The fans are kind of part of the film too, their life experience with the band and some of their stories, both sad and happy, that blend in.

"People have asked me why we've gotten such a good response to the film, and I said I think it's because you never know what's coming next," he continued. "It's not a consistent story — it doesn't go A, B, C, D, E, F, G. It's all leaping all over the place. One minute somebody's crying, the next minute someone's yelling — it just goes to so many places and there are so many people that are commenting from different lenses that I think it makes it interesting. And I give the credit to the directors; they are the ones that created something with [our story]… It's a series of stories. It's woven together into one story, but really what it is is you open the next door and you go, 'Oh my God. What's on the other side of this door?' I don't know whether it's a house of mirrors or a house of horrors or what it is. There's a surprise every minute — that's how I feel about it anyway. Otherwise I don't think I could watch it; I would just be, like, 'I don't wanna see this stuff. I was there and I know what happened.' But it's kind of fun for us to watch it because all the characters and things they say and everything, it really makes it."

Produced by Emmy and Peabody award-winning Banger Films, "Triumph: Rock & Roll Machine" is a Crave original documentary that has been described as "a celebratory, exhilarating thrill ride through the history of one of rock's most unsung acts." The film covers TRIUMPH's humble beginnings as staples of the GTA circuit in the mid-'70s to their heyday as touring juggernauts, selling out arenas and stadiums all across North America with their legendary spectacular live shows — and way beyond.
